When I was getting my coaching certification at Van Der Meer's, I got to meet and work with Shadisha. (Because we're both from NY.) She is truly a sweet kid. I worked her like a dog, and she took it all in stride. The following week, and a tennis festival in Savannah, who is the guest pro? Shadisha. They were having people come out and hit with her, and next thing I know, she and I were playing doubles against another pro, and the best doubles player in Savannah. Now, she's making ME go for all the shots, and working ME like a dog, to get even.

She did it jokingly, and afterwards, we laughed about it. Interestingly, during the match, she told me she was no longer going to hit the the doubles player I mentioned above, because, and I quote: "That guy is just TOO good."

We lost the set, 6-4, and it was all my fault, but it was a joy to be on the court with her. She has shuch a great additude, a fabulous game, and I hope she goes far.

Baseline game that tends to go all-court. She has a deft touch on the ball, but can bang away with the best of them. Her serve is fabulous, but she needs to develop a little more power on it, mainly because she's young and her muscles haven't fully matured.

As to her being pretty, well, I can't really look at her that way. I have a hard time thinking of attraction to any girl that's 4 years younger than my daughter, but she does have pretty eyes.

shadisha and i are good friends, we went to an academy together the past year. she is a cool girl, with a lot of potential. she got a WC into the qualies of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston in April. we went to watch and support her. she won both her qualies matches against wheeler and dominikovic (both australian and both ranked in the top 150 at the time) it was a great achievement, we really carried her through both tight 3 set matches. unfortunately she lost in the 1st round main draw against mikaelian.

anyway, she plays tomorrow on court 7, 3rd match on against amandine dulon from france. i believe she has a good draw and can qualify..

good luck! :worship: :bounce: :)

i actually told her she'd look better without braids, and she does, but she probably has them back now, although i doubt it..

Amandine knows how to play the game too
she's not been around long but is vastly more experienced

draw was pretty ok but nothing too eye-catching
Brandi will cakewalk that section

Shadisha played like shit...she always does in NY...she had the entire crowd on her side and she choked...she really has a nice game...but sometimes she looked like a beginner(which is exactly what she screamed to herself as she send shots into the back of the wall) :(

She moves the ball around really well...and she can really hit the ball HARD when she wants to...

She was awful at the net...and her tactics were crazy at times...she would hit forcing shots into the corner, follow them to net but hit the volley from the service line...DUH...her forehand was either GREAT or AWFUL...sometimes it looked downright UGLY...
